An Institutional Repository is the platform to distribute locally produced intellectual material.
The materials will be indexed by Google, and will be discovered by many other search tools.
Our Institutional Repository is intended to house many types of locally produced material, such as:
The library utilizes a shared DSpace server known as Constellation.
NOTE: There is a security prompt when entering the server. While it looks as if there are security concerns, it is actually a software glitch that creates this message. Due to the immanent migration to the CARLI server, this error message will remain for the remainder of our time on Constellation. IT IS SAFE to pass through the security warning by using the Advanced button, and then selecting the Proceed option.
The library intends to migrate our materials to a new CARL provided server run on the UIUC campus. This tool is under development and is expected to be in production by the end of 2022.
